mill has begun - will she or won't she run? no one knows for sure. we do know hillary clinton says she's leaving the high wire act of politics. she's travelled nearly one million miles and visited at least 120 countries. she's met with world leaders as well as women's groups to work toward women's empowerment. now she says she needs some down time. >> i think after 20 years it will be 20 years of being on the high wire of american politics and all of the challenges that come with that it would be probably good idea to just find out how tired i am. >> in response to alarming statistics about sexual assaults in the military, the pentagon announced new initiatives to prevent the crimes and help victims. america nuns continue to battle with the vatican, say the nuns have grown prelates say the nuns have grown too secular and liberal while abandoning traditional doctrine. on the corporate front, 19 women now head fortune 500 companies. joining the list was marissa mayer who made headlines for taking over yahoo. she then announced she was six months pregnant. mayer released her son's name ma

inside. i believe in dialogue that is not made through a commission like clinton had to explore race. i mean, we could have all those commissions, and the commissions are going to produce a document and pass it around and we, the intellectuals, are going to say, "yes," or "no," applaud it or condemn it, and then that's it. there has... the change has to be in the classroom in the elementary schools, in the middle schools. i think the classroom is a laboratory of... of conflict, of clashes. if we don't use the classroom to debate courageously ideas-- ideas we might not like-- nothing will happen outside. >> my colleagues and i, through dubois and harvard are working on a curriculum to revolutionize how we teach science and history to brown and black kids, because what we want to do is to show latino americans and african americans how hybrid we are, how black we all are-- all from africa, right? i mean, it's 11.2, so if i did your dna, i am convinced that you would have an astonishing amount of african ancestry because you're of mexican descent and native american. >> hinojosa: probably

: it is not light that is needed, but fire! and a series filled with role models for all women clinton: we were breaking new ground. this season, there's only one place that can take you anyplace. attenborough: isn't it wonderful? pbs for artists, one tremendous thing about pbs is that it makes art accessible by putting it on a platform where millions of people can access it for free. on pbs, many people have seen something they would never see otherwise. the language of music so universal, it can touch someone anywhere. and we need it. we need music, we need dance, we need great theater. we need all these things for our soul, you know, for joy and peace in our lives. after all these millennia, art is still something that survives. a lot of people don't have the means or aren't even aware that's something out there, and they may flip on pbs and e something that wakes up that integral part of being a human being which is enjoying the arts of other human beings. i feel like that's important to me. so i'm grateful for pbs {thank you} as an artist and as a viewer.

hillary clinton as secretary of state. here to walk us through the policeman call cause and effect in three states are "newshour" political editor christina and "roll call" we heard today that one of the kennedy h,irs, ted kennedy, junior, decided not to run for the seat in massachusetts, what's happening there? >> more of interesting dynamics at play. whenever a kennedy decides to run in massachusetts he sort of think that clears the field. so when he said he wanted to stay in connecticut, potentially run for something there one day -- >> ifill: which is where he lives. >> exactly. opens up the field for the democrats in a big way. really where everybody is paying attention right now the republican side. senator scott brown just lost the seat very high profile race in 2012 to elizabeth warren, should he choose to run for special election, try repeat in 2010 to be able to catch democrats by surprise, that could be his seat. but he may not run. there are lot 6 different things at play, he has options down the line, always run for governor at some point. if he doesn't run, then t

visible about it. helping to block. the conviction of bill clinton of impeachment. i've done a lot of work for affordable housing, rental housing. i understand the rap on me and other liberals is we push poor people into homeownership. and it's exactly the opposite of the case. we were trying to prevent those kinds of bad loans. and i'm beginning to see a substantial reduction in america's military budget and doing away with the notion that 65 years after world war ii we continue to have to protect the whole world. >> reporter: no concern that dodd-frank on the one hand, goes too far, as some people say, and on the other hand, as others say, doesn't go far enough? >> no, i don't think in any area it goes too far. as to the regulators, i would have been worried if mitt romney had been elected because he would have appointed non- regulators. but i think the people in place under president obama who helped write the law believe in it. the common theme in the bill, as i saw it, was to say to a great extent, people who make decisions that are risky, which should be done in the business communit
